Sure Teechr
Thanks for sharing this . Just one question please, i will defintitely start new thread if need be after this
I have read (used to , be to) etc these are verbal idiomsAlso i look forword to , look upto etc are phrasal verbs If we were to add an action/verb to phrasal verbIt would be in form of a gerundEg. I look forward to dealing in business (because - to is a preposition here not infinitive maker)Similarly in be to ( to is preposition not infinitive maker, not sure though) so why do we not use gerund here.

Thankyou

anonymousSimilarly in be to ( to is preposition not infinitive maker, not sure though) so why do we not use gerund here.

To me, "to" is an infinitive marker in that.
